Santa’s Little Ho Ho

It’s been a while since I shared a cocktail recipe so I think I’m overdue 🙂 I’m (were) a big fan of champagne but haven’t really experimented mixing it with too many things. This recipe seemed festive and a good way to celebrate the holiday season. Honestly, it’s been hard getting in t

Summer lovin’

Summer should get a speeding ticket, seriously! Our summer/hurricane season break was filled with lots of fun adventures! Feeling grateful that we were able to have this time to freely travel the country, stopping along the way to see friends and family. But what we loved most about this summer was

Sailboat Maintenance – Bottom Work

Approaching our second sailing season! Which means it’s time to get our lady prepped for the seas. Like any vehicle, maintenance is required except a boat is a little different than what we’ve been used to in terms of “vehicle maintenance”. Having the boat on the hard has bee

ICW – Northbound P2

Part-two of our ICW adventure is about all of the land fun we had along the way! Part-one was more about navigation, bridges, and stories as first-time ICW travelers. But our favorite part of cruising the ICW was taking our time to explore parts of the coast of Florida that we hadn’t seen since we

ICW – Northbound P1

Proudly checking off sailing The Intracoastal Waterway, a.k.a “ICW”, a.k.a “The Ditch”. Check. 🙂 The ICW is basically the superhighway for boats! This waterway allows cruisers to travel along the east coast without having to enter the Atlantic Ocean. The plus side to this

Decommissioning our boat

It’s been a week since we tucked away our gal for the cruising season. We left her in Green Cove Springs, FL We chose this marina for several reasons; affordable, long term storage, a do-it-yourself boat yard, and it’s located 25 miles inland with less exposure to storm winds and surge.

Gulf Stream Crossing – Take two!

After an unforgettable 3 months sailing through the Bahamas we crossed the Gulf Stream back to Florida! Our first sailing season has been a crazy, fun, sometimes difficult, but mostly awesome adventure. It’s hard to believe how quickly the time passed. Wow. We’ve grown and learned so muc

Our sailboat home

Finally getting around to posting all the interior…8 months later! Welcome to our home afloat! This is S/V Sea duction, I should mention we didn’t name her this. She was purchased with that name and although Brent hates the name for obvious punnie reasons, (I) people love it – it&#
